    THIS IS NOT HOW YOU ENTER DFU MODE AT ALL, why would you allow someone to post incorrect information on this website

    How to enter DFU:
    1. 3 seconds power button
    2. without releasing power button hold the home button and power button for 10 seconds.
    3 release power button and hold home button for 15 seconds

    Get out of DFU mode:
    1. Hold power and home button for 10 seconds then let go of both buttons
    2. Hold power button for 2 seconds and let go
    3. Your phone should now turn on

        briked means stuck no memory left in the system because apple sends you the one virus that works with idevices and stops boot and kills memory

    • Jude says:

      I have just bought an iPhone 3s and have been using itfor three days and it won’t turn on. It was about 50% charged and I plugged in to charge overnight, turned itself off and won’t go back on. Have been through the iTunes support and tried to reset by holding the power and home keys down simultaneously but it won’t go on. Have also tried what you aid to do above but nothing then either. HELP
